Realme GT Neo 3T review: a mid-range marathon runner

The company has chosen a triple photo module on the back, including a 64-megapixel wide-angle module (f / 1.8 optics), an ultra-wide angle (8 megapixel, f / 2.3) and a 2 MP (f / 2.4) macro module.

The GT Neo 3T displays a configuration similar to that of the Oppo Find X5 Lite. Ideal for a comparison.

Wide angle module: 16 Mpx, f / 1.8, lign. 25 mm

Realme uses the technique for pixel binding, which consists of grouping four photo locations into one to achieve more light. By default, the smartphone takes 16 megapixel snapshots, but it is possible to take advantage of its full definition of 64 megapixels to obtain theoretically more detailed images.

The main module delivers a good reproduction. The level of detail is higher (see the two faces in our photo) and the whole is sharper. We see this especially in the sights, which do not “bleed”, unlike Oppo Find X5 Lite. This is primarily due to a greater contrast. None of them show optimal colorimetry. Realme assumes a warmer hue, which translates into the perception of a kind of light yellow veil that dulls the colors.

At night, we prefer its competitor. Digital smoothing loses many details in both cases, but the GT Neo 3T struggles even more. Find X5 Lite handles the contrast a little better despite its low exposure. The signs on the book are thus more readable despite a clear noise.

64 megapixel mode

It is possible to enforce full definition in the settings. We isolated an area of ​​the same size (0.90 Mpx) on each of the shots. You can see the difference in the definition.



64 MP night mode


64 MP day mode

During the day there is a small gain in detail and a slightly finer rendering. This is not the case for night photography. It will therefore be possible to easily crop your image, but the interest seems limited.

Ultra wide angle module: 8 Mpx, f / 2.3, 119˚, lign. 16 mm

Mid-range ultra-wide-angle modules are never really convincing. It is not surprising that the Realme GT Neo 3T does not shine in the exercise.

During the day, the Realme GT Neo 3T delivers an overexposed rendering. The control of the dynamics is risky and the light tends to make many details disappear. The snapshot of Find X5 Lite, more contrasted, seems increasingly readable (without really convincing).

In the dark, the two sensors can no longer keep up. We always distinguish several things on Oppo, but the picture is useless in both cases.

Front and video module

A 16 Mpx sensor, whose lens opens at f / 2.5, is located in front. Selfies are of good quality when light is available, although there are some difficulties with high exposure. At night, the degree of detail and sharpness inevitably decreases and makes the exercise more complicated.

The device is capable of recording in 4K at 30 fps. The level of detail is high and the dynamics are well controlled. The colors seem a little less vibrant than in reality and it all lacks a little contrast. However, it is possible to capture beautiful moments on video, especially thanks to the “ultra-stability” mode (Full HD only).
